Cozumel, take a taxi to Mezcalito’s Beach, about 15-20 minutes from San Miguel, the only town on Cozumel. Mezcalitos is at the dead end (eastern end) of the only east/west road in the center of the island and has a great bar and restaurant. Nude beach to the north of the bar. See:Mezcalitos

Curacao The Natural on Curacao….the only clothing optional resort on the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao). Adults only. The Natural is single friendly, lesbian and gay friendly. Day visitors welcome. Several beaches and the most beautiful dive and snorkel spots are within a stone’s throw away. The resort is about 20 minutes by car from Willemstad, the cruise port. Nearby you can visit restaurants, beaches, dive spots, too.

Here’s a Trip Report from Aquele:   I visited The Natural on te island Curacao. It’s the only clothing optional resort on the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao). Clothing optional means that naturism is permitted, but not mandatory. They respect your choice whether or not to wear clothes by the pool, on the sun terraces or on the porch of your bungalow. They are gay friendly, single friendly, etc. Everyone is welcome. Visitors for one day have to pay Naf. 10,-. The small-scale resort is located in one of the most beautiful natural areas of Curacao. No mass tourism and hardly any traffic; you only hear the twittering of birds and the rustle of the wind. To guarantee the calm on the resort, they apply a minimum age of 16 years for our guests. The Natural rents apartments and new, luxury holiday bungalows with a beautiful, unobstructed view. Several beaches and the most beautiful dive-and snorkel spots are within a stone’s throw away. The vibrant city of Willemstad is reachable in only 20 minutes by car. They rent cars for a reasonable price. I loved the BBQ they organize for the guests, we got to know other guests from Germany,the States and the Netherlands during coffee-hour in the morning on the windy terrace with the great view. And you really have the choice of no noise and rest in the resort, but nearby you can visit restaurants, beaches, dive spots etc….We had a great time and like to come back as soon as possible.

Get Naked and Unwind at These 8 Beautiful Beaches (ABC news)
Good Morning America By JANE REYNOLDS, Oyster.com
Sun and sand is great and all, but some (us included) would argue that a beachy setting gets better when the clothes come off. Not only is it totally freeing (as a vacation should be), but it’s also economical — no need to buy a new bathing suit or pay to check your bag! So come and get the skinny on our favorite nude beaches.

1. Haulover Beach, Miami:  Though Miami is topless-friendly just about everywhere, Haulover Beach is the only true nude beach in this spring break hotspot. The waters are crystal clear, the soft sand is debris-free, plus there are tons of on-beach amenities. Haulover has lifeguards (in swimsuits, unfortunately), food and drink vendors, and plenty of organized activities like birthday-suit volleyball…although we recommend not going for the save.  Where to Stay: See Haulolver Beach page in Castaways site.

2. Saline Beach, St. Barts: One of the poshest islands in all the Caribbean, St. Barts attracts tons of celebs (Beyonce, Jay-Z, Orlando Bloom, Demi Moore, to name a few) and nude-friendly Saline Beach is no different. This uber-secluded, romantic beach has even been the backdrop for several Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoots.  Where to Stay:  St Barts page in Castaways site.  Carl Gustav    Guanahani Resort

3. Runaway Bay, Jamaica  The nude beach on Runaway Bay is a good choice for low-key folks legitimately interested in naked sunbathing. The clothing-optional spot sits on the far western edge of the Gran Bahia property, and is blocked off by a tall fence so you don’t have to worry about the kids accidentally checking out some T&A. Plus, when you’re in your bathing suit, the clothing-mandatory beach (adjacent to its nude counterpart) is equally as beautiful, and is great for snorkeling.  Where to Stay:   Grand Bahia Principe Runaway Bay

4. Black’s Beach, San Diego:  This spot is not for the shy. North America’s largest nude beach, Black’s Beach draws a big crowd with its large surfer-friendly waves, picturesque setting along California‘s cliffs, and clothing-optional policies. It’s also an easy drive from La Jolla and Torrey Pines. Where to Stay:

5. Playitas Beach, Costa Rica
Playitas is a gorgeous, untouched beach in super-lush Costa Rica. When we visited, we even spotted monkeys prancing across the sand. Surfers and swimmers alike can enjoy this beach as waves are mid-size — big enough to hang ten but not strong enough to scare off a mildly-experienced swimmer. Where to Stay:   SUU Manuel Antonio Hotel  or Arenas Del Mar Beach and Nature Resort   Both near Manuel Antonio National Park

6. Baker Beach, San Francisco:  It may not host Burning Man anymore, but this beach still has a reputation for being a fun spot — just without clothing now. Only the northern end of this half-mile stretch of sand, which boasts beautiful views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, is clothing-optional so be sure to read the signs before ditching your bathing suit.  Where to Stay:   Grand Hyatt San Francisco

7. Little Beach, Maui – Makena State Park:  It’s always fun to break the rules, Little Beach does just that. Nude sunbathing is technically illegal in Hawaii, but this rule hasn’t been enforced at Little Beach in years, making it a popular spot to disrobe. Visitors swim, sunbathe, surf, and even keep their eyes open for the occasional whale spotting.  Where to Stay:  Makena Beach and Golf Resort

8. Orient Beach, St. Martin/St. Maarten:  On the French side of the island, Orient Beach is a popular hangout on the exclusive island of St. Martin. As a marine reserve, the beach boasts fabulous snorkeling and Orient Bay’s sands are lined with restaurants and bars so you won’t have to go far (or put much on) for a bite to eat.  Where to Stay:  Esmeralda on Orient Beach    Castaways’ Club Orient page    Alamanda Resort    La Plantation
